Book Description

1 April 2007
In this authoritative book, Phil Whyman - paranormal investigator and member of Living TV's Most Haunted team - introduces the reader to the different forms of paranormal activity that can be encountered at a haunted site. He explains what ghosts are and the different forms they can take, orbs and light anomalies, and poltergeist phenomena. He then goes on to detail the equipment used in an investigation and to provide a guide to conducting one, taking into account such diverse issues as moon phases and approaching location owners. Phil's in-depth analysis includes information on aspects of paranormal investigation not usually found in books of this type, such as magnetic field interference, earth tremor and residual energy theory. The book also includes reports on investigations that Phil has undertaken as well as accounts from members of the public.

Written by Phil Whyman of "Most Haunted" and "Scream Team" fame, this guide to the paranormal is one of the better books on the subject I have read, and I've read quite a few!

Written in a conversational style that makes it very easy to read, it provides varied information such as the different classifications of ghosts, how to conduct your own investigation and what equipment you will need and goes on to explore Phil's own experiences in the field of paranormal investigation.

This book manages to present a very balanced view of the paranormal, neither dwelling too much on the basics or going too deeply into the mechanics of the paranormal, making it a great read for beginners and experts alike. It also avoids bias toward psychic or sceptical explanation, so has appeal to believers and non-believers alike.

With some great photography and compelling witness testimonies, this book is a must for anyone with an interest in all things ghostly.

For those who dont know who the author is, this book is written by Phil Whyman - paranormal expert from the tv series MOST HAUNTED. I have been ghosthunting for a number of years now and am always keen to gain an insight into the subject and this book does not disappoint. With information on possible theories for ghostly activity, equipment used, experiments to use and a 'how to' section on conducting your own investigation Phil takes the reader and leads them through the publication in an easy to understand and well explained style. I found the experiences of the public and Phil's own write-up fascinating. Well recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dead Haunted 12 Jun 2007
In a genre swamped with half baked ideologies and touchy feely 'mumbo jumbo', Whyman delivers in DEAD HAUNTED the easy to read 'Dummies Guide' to the world of paranormal investigation we've all been waiting for.

Stepping away from the 'assumed knowledge'/jargon heavy trap that so many of his peers have fallen into; Whyman explains in detail the who, what, when, where, why and most importantly 'how' of paranormal investigation, managing to keep the information relevant and interesting to beginner and old hand alike.

Whyman's narrative clearly shows the depth of his knowledge and his passion for his subject matter, not to mention a delightfully quirky sense of humour that, I admit, came as something of a surprise.

Overall, a read worthy of shoving in the Christmas stocking with an EMF reader and a wind up torch!

5.0 out of 5 stars BUY IT 10 April 2007
Speaking as someone who has been involved with paranormal investigations for over 7 years I have say I enjoyed this book!

Very readable for both those who have experience and those that are new to the subject, Phil Whyman shows an obvious passion for the subject without the obvious 'need to thrill' so often found in books on the same subject. I did not find his writing arrogant at all - just an obvious enthusiasm to share his experiences and views with everyone.

The book has some great photography and is a highly recommended read.
